Following the death of Eddie Van Halen here's a blackout poem from 'Jump'.
Cover version by Foo Fighters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxIFE61q3-0

Jump - Van Halen

I get up and nothin' gets me down
You got it tough, I've seen the toughest around
And I know, baby,just how you feel
You got to roll with the punches and get to what's real

Ah, can't you see me standin' here
I got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen
Ah, can't you see what I mean?

Ah, might as well jump (jump)
Might as well jump
Go ahead and jump (jump)
Go ahead and jump
Ow, oh, hey, you
Who said that?

Baby, how you been?
You say you don't know
You won't know until you begin

So can't ya see me standing here
I got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen

Ah, can't you see what I mean?

Ah, might as well jump (jump)
Go ahead and jump

Might as well jump (jump)
Go ahead and jump
Jump

Might as well jump (jump)
Go ahead and jump
Get it in, jump (jump)
Go ahead and jump

Jump
Jump
Jump
Jump

Jump

Nothin' gets me down,
I've seen the toughest around.
I know just how you feel,
you've got to roll with the punches.
I ain't the worst you've seen;
might as well jump.
Go ahead and jump.
How you been?
You say you don't know,
you won't know until you begin
so ya
might as well jump.
Go ahead and jump!
